Frugalpac brews up success
The maker of the FrugalCup, the coffee cup made from 96% recycled paper, has secured the BRCGS global standard for packaging materials.
British sustainable packaging firm Frugalpac, which recently launched the Frugal Bottle made from 94% recycled paper, has been awarded an A grade for its Frugal Cup production in the BRCGS audit, which helps packaging organisations deliver products that help support the delivery of safe, hygienic food and drink.
The Frugal Cup has a carbon footprint up to 60% lower than conventional cups when sent to landfill and is easier to recycle again. The Cup is manufactured in Wrexham with manufacturing and personalised printing partner The Cup Folk.
To get certification, the factory in Wrexham underwent a third party audit of everything from quality management and risk analysis to building standards.
Getting certification will help Frugalpac in its global mission to create and supply recycled paper based products with the lowest carbon footprint that are easily recycled and don’t need go to landfill.
Chief executive Malcolm Waugh said, ‘We are incredibly pleased that Frugalpac has secured the BRCGS global standard for packaging materials with flying colours.
‘Since launching the Frugal Bottle, we have been inundated with enquiries from around the world, from brands, bottlers and retailers and seen increased interest and orders for our Frugal Cup.
‘Attaining the BRCGS Global Standard is a huge endorsement for Frugalpac and a vital part of our plan to export and promote our sustainable packaging products around the world.
‘We are immensely proud of achieving a grade A for our first audit and this is again due to the hard work and fortitude of all the Frugalpac team.’
